Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool: Lockjaw
This November sees the newest release for WizKids‘ Dice Masters, Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool. The set is focused on Deadpool’s world including the X-Men and Weapon X, but the set also includes some other familiar characters and the first appearance of the Inhumans team affiliation. I’ll be reviewing a card a day until the set’s release in a few weeks. But, beyond discussing the cards and how they fit into the Dice Masters game, I’ll also focus on the characters themselves and if the card reflects their comic history.
Next up is Lockjaw: Transport the Royals, the uncommon version of the card.
Art: Frank Cho, Inhuman #2 Variant
Comic origin: Debuting in 1965 in Fantastic Four #45, Lockjaw was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and is an Inhuman character that looks like a giant bulldog… and he can teleport.
Lockjaw serves the royal family and acts as their transport and has also been affiliated with the Fantastic Four and Pet Avengers.
Live action version: None that I know of.
Card playability: A 3 SHIELD cost and a total of 1 to field, the character and card absolutely stands out to me. The ability to remove the character if a blocking match-up doesn’t do well is solid and it forces your opponent to choose if they’ll block you, or let him through. The die stats too are solid allowing the character to take a bit of damage before being killed.
Card vs. Comic: Not quite sure on the connection.
Final Thoughts: I really dig the card and can’t wait to see the other versions as well as the rest of the Inhumans team members.
